Mojo247 Summer Butterfly

Oh my friggin' word, we've been without power since late last night and it JUST (as in 4 p.m.) came back on. Luckily, we have a generator to run all the basics like the fridge and everything, but the central air was down so it was getting hot in here and I couldn't get on the internet (I know...booo hoooo, right?....lol!).  We're back in business now though and I made a few cards today while the power was out.  This one is for Mojo Monday Sketch 247.


It's a 4" square card, stamps are from Verve's "Fluttering By" set, papers are Summer Fresh (by Simple Stories), the punched sentiment and kraft circle are up on foam tape, and there's an extra butterfly that was stamped onto the DP, cut out, and also popped up on foam tape.


The circle is a Spellbinders die, the sentiment was punched with SU's word window punch, the "flag" at the top was cut with MFT's First Place Award Die-namics, and the cream-colored ric-rac was cut with MFT's ric-rac Die-namics.

Hope you're having a great weekend so far. Now that the power is back, I'm off to do some laundry....

This is a really cute card. With the storms we've been having...our lights kept going on and off, but fortunatley, we didn't lose power. I don't have Central Air...but I sure would miss the one window A/C that we do have with all this heat...
Hope you have a great, (and cool) weekend!

Cute card! I love how you did the butterfly. It's amazing how much we depend on electricity and don't realize it until it's gone. With us, we even run out of water when the electricity is out because we have a well that needs electricity to pump it out of the ground and into the house!
